Do I Need to Hire an Attorney to Incorporate My Business?
In our modern world, there are many new do-it-yourself options that have come about to make life easier with regard to completing legal paperwork and avoiding the need to hire an attorney. Many individuals are looking for ways by which they can save when starting a new business, and many new owners are tempted to incorporate their business without the assistance of an experienced business attorney.
While it is possible to incorporate your business on your own without the help of an attorney, it does involve a substantial amount of risk. It is vital to the future of your business from both a financial and legal standpoint that you understand how to structure your business correctly and properly complete and file any necessary documents that you may need.
It is in your best interest to obtain legal representation from an experienced attorney who can discuss your business, and help to make a determination as to whether or not your business needs to incorporate and file the proper paperwork. It is important to be certain that your incorporation documents are prepared correctly in order to shield you from future liability with regard to your business debts.
Why Do I Need an Operating Agreement for My Business?
Operating agreements pertain to LLCs and are not legally required in Massachusetts. However, if you choose not to establish one for your company, its administration will automatically default to state law designed to govern LLCs. By not establishing your own Operating Agreement, you are turning a large portion of control over your own business to the state. Composing your own Operating Agreement allows you to maintain control and determine your own set of rules and regulations that will enable you to manage your business using your own preferred methods.
If you have gone into business with family or friends, an Operating Agreement is an essential tool as it can predetermine guidelines for the business. This information will also prove to be invaluable to all managers, employees, and any other individuals who are part of the daily operation of the business to ensure that all parties understand everyday practices and rules. Having all of the information in writing makes it much easier to resolve conflicts should the need arise.
Can a Business Lawyer Assist Me With Employment Issues?
One of the most important issues the business owners can face is ensuring that their employees receive fair treatment on the job. This can range from hiring practices to making certain the everyday work standards are properly maintained.
As a business owner, it is crucial to the success of your business to be certain that you are in compliance with all applicable regulations and can protect yourself from future financial liability. A business lawyer can readily advise you of changes to current or other relevant employment laws and draft employee contracts. In addition, they can also guarantee that you are adhering to all state regulations in regard to worker’s comp or providing healthcare insurance to your employees.

If you are starting a business or are a current business owner, you owe it to yourself and your employees to be certain that you are aware of all state guidelines and regulations that may pertain to your company. Often state laws change, and business owners are not aware and find themselves having to deal with legal issues as a result.
